Stream Beetles Write their Bodies through Scientific Text



A colleague of mine who is a poet and and professor and researcher in ecology, Madhur Anand, invited several poets to engage with some of her scientific articles and create poetry. The article that I am exploring is this one about stream beetles. The idea is to create a poem based entirely on the text of the article. While I was exploring this idea, I ended up creating this visual based on a superimposition of some of the pages of the article.
